Presentation Info

You know that feeling, when a small decision like what kind of bread to buy sends you down the rabbit hole. Suddenly 20 minutes have passed and you're still standing rooted in aisle 3 without any bread in your cart? Yeah, that's decision fatigue. It happens when we're burned out and tired. Every decision feels like it's taking a tremendous amount of brain power. And if you’re neurodiverse like me, it might be that your optimizer went a little overboard. In this workshop we’ll go through an exercise to identify and ground yourself in your personal values. Then create values statements and guiding questions to help you make decisions.
Presentation Handouts

What IS curiosity? What inspires curiosity for you? Learn how this underrated superpower can change the way you interact with and build relationships with other people, and the way you approach conflict. Curiosity is a superpower for creating the kind of cultures we all want to be part of, where we feel valued and seen – and it’s a secret ingredient in allyship and anti-oppression work. Together we’ll practice what seems so simple in theory: asking questions and creating space for the answers.
